This is my list of “wants”.  Items that I’m trying to obtain for free or very low cost for Christian’s birthday party:

° Wilton Sport Ball Pan Set – to make the moon cake

° Rocket popsicle mold

° Rocket playset – I’d LOVE to get Christian a rocket toy set, but every single one of them that I’ve ever seen is SUPER expensive!  So, if you’re out and about and happen to see one, PLEASE check it out and give me a call!  Something like THIS or THIS or THIS <– (click the words “THIS” for link to pictures)

° stickers – stars, planets, astronauts, rockets, NASA, American flags, Space Shuttle, etc.  These would be for the goody bag party favors for the kids to take home

° space-themed children’s books

° styrofoam balls – I’m still debating whether to make paper mache or just use styrofoam balls for the hanging solar system decoration; I need about 10 of these to make the entire solar system, including the sun, so I’ll need various sizes, too.

° Stomp rocket – check out this BUBBLE stomp rocket I found: Click HERE

° rocket/astronaut themed candles (Don’t know if I’ll be able to get these, but THEY ARE SO CUTE!)

° large yellow round paper lantern (to use as the sun in the hanging galaxy) [or paper mache?]

° round balloons, such as water balloons for paper mache planets.  will need large round balloon as well, for Jupiter and the sun

° astronaut costume – size 2T to 3T – in white, orange or silver

This one is only $15 on Craigslist, and it’s in Garden Grove AND it’s his size!  *SIGH*:  http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/clo/1916411695.html

° star-shaped mylar balloons in navy blue, silver, white, teal, red

° mylar balloons shaped in the number 3

° star-shaped candy mold

° Plaster of Paris

° This is more in the wishful-thinking department, but check out this inflatable space shuttle ride-on toy:

As we go and as I obtain each item, I will post how I obtained it and for how much on the “Have” tab.  Enjoy!
